Hundreds of thousands of tourists come into New York City every season for one reason and one reason only: Broadway shows. Lucky for you, if you live in NYC, you have the world’s best theater literally at your fingertips (and maybe even in the same neighborhood if you live in one of Glenwood’s Westside or Midtown East luxury apartment buildings – both so convenient to the theater district!)

We’ve scoped out all the shows opening Fall 2017, and rounded up a variety of our most anticipated ones below – a little something for every kind of theater goer!

If You’re Looking for an Entertaining Comedy: Latin History for Morons

Latin History for Morons is John Leguizamo’s newest one-man show where he teaches his son, the audience, and himself about the unknown history of Latinos in America. This was originally a sold out run off-Broadway at the Public Theatre (yep, the very same one Hamilton started at!), so we have high hopes! The entertaining number will only be around for 16 weeks, so plan accordingly.

Latin History for Morons will be playing at Studio 54, with previews starting October 19th, 2017.

Want to See a Star Studded Cast? Check Out Meteor Shower

Meteor Shower is on our radar this fall primarily because it’s written by Steve Martin and it stars Amy Schumer – two names which guarantee it’s going to be an entertaining evening on Broadway! The storyline of this show is two couples finding themselves in a meteor shower (and maybe not ironically, a marital free fall), one hot California night. Variety calls this show the “cosmic comedy from the master of the American absurd”, and with a limited run of only 12 weeks, you want to be sure to score your tickets early!

Meteor Shower will be playing at the Booth Theatre, with previews starting November 1st, 2017.

For the Perfect Kid Friendly Musical: Spongebob Squarepants

Spongebob Squarepants is sure to be the Broadway number getting even the littlest New Yorkers excited about musical theater this fall! You’ll be front and center as SpongeBob and all of Bikini Bottom face catastrophe, until a most unexpected hero rises and we learn that the power of optimism really can save the world. But even though this show may seem like it’s targeted exclusively for kiddos, the adults are really going to appreciate the music. The show has tons of original songs from favorites such as Cyndi Lauper, Lady Antebellum, David Bowie, and so many more.

Spongebob will be playing at the Palace, with previews starting November 6th, 2017.

The Perfect Holiday Show: Home for the Holidays

Home for the Holidays is the ideal show to book for this fall if you’re looking for something to get in the mood for Christmas (arguably the time NYC shines best, dressed in all of its tinseled glory!) It features some of the greatest voices of our generation (winners of American Idol, The Voice, and America’s Got Talent) performing modern takes on more than 25 holiday favorites. You’ll be able to sing along to the likes of traditional songs such as “O Holy Night”, as well as more contemporary ones such as “All I Want For Christmas Is You”. As you can imagine, this is a very limited run of only 6 weeks–just enough to get you through the holiday season!

Home for the Holidays will be playing at the August Wilson Theatre, with previews starting November 17th, 2017.
